I was tempted to call this exhibition ‘Pictures of Paintings’; a simple title. Because what I find I am doing is painting a picture of a painting, seen, as it were, on a wall, and illuminated by an invented light, be it a beam, ray, or shaft, or glow. Some window-scapes, some abstract paintings, some landscape paintings. So my playground is to paint the light emanating from the picture ( painting ) Bathed in the light illuminating the painting ( picture ). Light of a certain temperature and tone. On the other hand, I could have called the exhibition ‘Paintings of Pictures’, So there you have it Pictures of Paintings, Paintings of Pictures. I will call it TWO YEARSOF PAINTING and leave it at that. I hope you will enjoy looking at the works as much as I have enjoyed painting them.
